I have translated more strings.

I think someone who knows Arabic should revise them because I found difficulties in many technical terms.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to update this again before the next build or not, so it would be great if anyone could help with this.

Reason for closing:  Accepted
Additional comments about closing:  I've now edited the result to remove all untranslated strings, so you or someone else can have another go to translate more strings. This results in about 125 translated strings which is nothing to sneeze at. Thank you!

Committed in revision 20292.

Considering how little attention the current arabic translation has received, any improvement is welcome - even if you're a bit unsure of some things.

I'm leaning towards committing your work as it is, and then we'll see if anything turns up? It seems Rockbox has very few Arabic speaking users (or they just don't bother with the translation).

I think it's both, but mainly because technical terms become a bit vague and obfuscated when translated.
